Anton Wethers was a patient of Three Rivers Medical Center. Anton is a prodigistic basketball player. His lawyer reveals that he used to be on drugs, but since then, he has been clean, and is ready for the pros. Then Anton collapses. Anton is rushed to Three Rivers. Dr. Andy Yablonski is called down, and treats Anton, and tells him to hang in there as Anton collapsess. Andy is able to revive Anton, but is concerned that Anton's heart is too big for the VAD that they have to put in. Anton is awake, and is hooked up to a machine, and has a VAD. Ross Kobul, Anton's lawyer, arrives in Anton's room. Andy explains to Anton that he cannot leave just yet, since his heart is not pumping enough blood. Andy tells Anton about his conditon; his valve is too small to pump blood, which is why he collapsed earlier, and proposes to replace his vavle. Anton and Ross agree. While opperating on Anton, Andy notices that the new valve is not working. He sends Anton upstairs. Andy tells Anton that he needs a heart transplant. Anton askes how long it is before he can play ball. Andy tells him that he can never play ball again, and he's sorry. Anton refuses the heart transplat, and shouts at Ross to get out of his room.
